I'm out of work right now (I got two job offers, so I put my two weeks in and my last employer completely removed me from the schedule and wouldn't let me work out my last two weeks), and won't get paid for at least a month because the job I got becomes available for me to start later this month. My husband is working and things are a little tight because of our bills, so I'm considering signing up for food stamps again until I get paid, then getting off of them. We were on them while I was pregnant for the same reason (him working, me not, but that was when I was on bedrest), then got off them after I went back to work and we were making enough to not need them as much. I hate asking for help most of the time, but since this is short term, and we could really use them, I'm considering it.
Would you swallow your pride and do it?
(Oh, and I have nothing against FS, I just hate needing help.)

Not sure how it works in your area, but I have heard that it takes about a month before you can actually get food stamps. Maybe try a food bank or something like Angel Food Ministries- https://www.angelfoodministries.com/
